10 Seconds

During this holiday season, if you live in the Cleveland area, and you happen to see a commercial for Alson Jewelers, listen to the music...

Yes, that's me.

It's amazing how much time and work goes into writing and producing of a short commercial ;)
Thanks to the fine folks at Rosenberg Advertising for the opportunity.

Post-Gig Wrap-Up and other hyphenated words

Thanks to all those who came out to the show Friday night -- great costumes all the way around, especially jeremy and batty_ for their borg-licious outfits.

Tenant opened the show in fine fashion with some great music, tasty drumming and very nice vocal work... I'll see if Steeeeve has pictures that we can link to... (bonus points for the DEVO outfit and energy dome).

Our set went pretty well considering it was only our seventh rehearsal... I pulled the bass DI out for a few minutes between songs, which made me look sillier than usual trying to figure it out (duh!) but all the songs sounded good (plus a nice version of "Killing Moon") and by far the best version of Pyscho Killer to date -- bringing along the French lyrics to the middle section really helped ;)

Of course the big closer "Everyday Is Halloween" by Ministry ended the set -- we did the song the original way during the verses (fake british accent and all) and then re-imagined the chorus sections as if present day Ministry were playing it. Yow!

All in all a fun evening... I think we're ready for next year.
